It might seem like remote control cars are where all the real fun’s at, but it’s hard not to be completely wowed by this flawless miniature recreation of a Felbermayr heavy-lifting crane that itself is capable of hoisting over 80 pounds of cargo.
Where as most remote control cars simply have four wheels that spin and steer, this crane has endless moving parts and functioning components allowing it work just like the real thing. There’s rolling tank treads, adjustable support arms, an extending counter-weight system with retractable wheels, and what looks like miles of cables wound up through its towering boom.
If it were easier to stuff in the trunk of a car, this RC crane would seemingly be the perfect tool for carrying heavy bags of groceries home. Even if it turned a half-hour trip into an hours long adventure.
